40"L x 2" OD (1016 mm L x 51 mm OD) mixing tube with PTFE resin bearing at the top and base; 316 SS shaft; turbine and sleeve, and 10-ft (3-m).
These efficient tube mixers allow you to thoroughly mix the contents of 55-gallon (200 liter) drums without removing the drum lid. The 40" (1016 mm) long mixing tube fits into standard 2" (51 mm) bungs and generates a powerful top-to-bottom flow.
A shaft-mounted turbine inside the mixing tube creates a steady suction effect at four upper intake ports. Mixers draw approximately 13 to 14 gallons (49 to 53 liters) of liquid (750 cp max) per minute through the 2" (51 mm) OD mixing tube. The forcefully expelled liquid resuspends and dissolves settled particles. Choose either an electric or air-drive motor mixer.
Air-drive motor mixer has a 3/4-hp motor that generates speeds from 300 to 3000 rpm with 50-100 psi air input. Mixer includes flow regulator and muffler. We recommend using an air filter/regulator and lubricator.

Q:Is this mixer rated for continuous use?
A:Yes, it can be run continuously, but the factory suggests putting a air filter and lubricator on the intake to keep the air motor in best condition.
Q:What viscosities limit the success.
A:The maximum viscosity for this mixer is 750cps. Please contact us directly if you have any specific questions to your application.
Q:Is this item approved for pharmaceutical product mixing in a 55 gal drum with 2" bung hole for viscosities of 75 to 95 mPa.s? If so, please provide quote.
A:This drum mixer does is not tested for a specific industry. While it does not have any specific approvals or certifications, it and similar mixers are used in many industries. It would still be the responsibility of the end-user to determine the suitability of the product for a given application.
Q:Will the muffler or lubricator expell oil particulates into the air no matter how small?
A:The muffler that comes standard with this motor has a felt filter that will absorb some of the oil in the exhaust, but not all. If you require an air motor, you can either install an outlet filter in place of the muffler, or run another air line from the outlet to an outlet filter to capture the oil before the air is expelled into the atmosphere. We have various filters that could be used, one example is the 79700-75, depending on connection and air flow. The other option is to use a mixer with an electric motor. The 04316-20 is the same mixer with a 115VAC, TEFC motor and the 04316-24 is the same mixer but with an explosion-proof motor for 115VAC.
Q:Would this mixer be usable on 15 gallon or 30 gallon drum, opposed to the standard 55 gallon drum? I mostly work with plastic drums. I guess what I am getting at, is if the liquid level is below the first intake, will it still be able to function correctly. Also what is the maximum viscosity this mixer is able to handle?
A:This mixer would not work on another size drum or pail. Perhaps a 50500-37 would be more appropriate for your needs, it can mix up to 55 gallons of very high viscosity fluids. Please contact our technical application specialists for additional assistance (contact information can be found in the "contact us" section on the web page).
Q:Is this product suitable for using in a hazardous area (ATEX Zone 2) or on flammable materials?
A:Yes, that is the type of area the air driven units are made for. For a better idea on chemical compatibility please contact us directly with the specific liquids you plan to pump.
